VISTA Leader efforts will seek to alleviate poverty by raising awareness and promoting service engagement, especially for low-income students. The VISTA Leader will oversee all VISTA members, assisting members as they connect with WVU faculty, community partners, and local units using service as learning to provide direct pathways to volunteer learning experiences, both in class and in the community, that encourage enrollment and enhance retention of students on all campuses.

The VISTA Leader will recruit, coordinate with, and support each of the VISTA members to help increase their impact. Through the VISTA Leader efforts, they will increase and enhance the number of innovative service-learning opportunities at WVU, as well as raise awareness of iServe and the opportunities to streamline service data.

VIEW JOBS 10/13/2019 12:00:00 AM 2020-01-11T00:00 West Virginia has historically been one of the poorest states in the nation, and has been particularly economically challenged in recent decades. Per the U.S. Census, 17.5% of West Virginians fell below the poverty line in 2015. Effective strategies to address poverty in WV rest squarely with improving health, educational attainment, and innovation, per the West Virginia Center for Budget and Policy. Work carried out by the VISTA will address health and education by supporting local programs that work to improve health and education outcomes in WV communities. It is challenging for communities without much staff and/or resources to find the data they need to support their applications for grant funding or even programmatic development. We will help these local organizations by building a database of local data available through a website portal and dashboard. We have collected the data and are documenting it, but we would like to be able to share this data with other organizations so that we are not the only ones benefiting from it. Once we have the data and dashboard prepared, we will reach out to networks of non-profits and local governments to tell them about the availability. We also will develop a tutorial to show them how easy it will be to access the data that they need to strengthen their arguments, improve programs, and apply for more grant monies. There are numerous organizations, agencies, and local and national foundations working to address poverty and health in West Virginia; however, most of them to do not have the means to find and analyze data. The Department of Sociology and Anthropology is well suited to this task given their awareness of how systems and social contexts shape individual behaviors within communities.
